A Brief Sketch Of The Life Of Raja Dharma Pravina, T.R.A. Thumboo Chetty, C.I.E., Formerly Chief Judge and Offg. Dewan of Mysore. By T. Royaloo Chetty. [1909]
I have compiled, out of fragments of materials placed at my disposal, the following brief sketch of the life of my late father Raja Dharma Pravina Mr T. R. A. Thumboo Chetty, C.I.E., for whom, at his birth, was predicted a career of future usefulness to others and honour and happiness to himself. To what extent that prediction has been realized must be left to the judgment of the readers to determine.
Whatever may be the merits or demerits of this compilation, I have, at the request of many of my father’s friends, taken the liberty of giving publicity to it, in the hope that the many topics and great variety of subjects treated of therein will not be found to be altogether uninteresting, illustrating as they do the vicissitudes of a life which extended for a period of more than six and half decades.
In view of the fact that the major portion of my Father’s public career was in the judicial line, and that the foundations for his legal attainments were laid by that eminent Jurist, the Hon’ble Mr. John Dawson Mayne, of the Inner Temple, Barrister-at-Law, formally Officiating Advocate-General of Madras, and Author of “A Treatise on Damages”, “The Criminal Law of India,” etc., whose esteemed pupil my Father had the good fortune to be, I have thought it fit to dedicate this work to him.
My special thanks are due to Mr. Ramakrishna Pillay, B.A., Deputy Manager, Appellate Side, High Court of Madras, and to Mr. P.G. D’Souza, B.A., B.L., UnderSecretary to the Government of His Highness the Maharaja of Mysore, both of whom greatly helped me in my compilation and very kindly revised the proofs for me.
1st December 1909, ‘Rugby Hall’, Bangalore
T. Royaloo Chetty.
